Detroit police are seeking tips to find a man suspected of fatally shooting a man attending a funeral reception last weekend on the city’s east side.

Investigators believe the shooter had argued with a relative of the 42-year-old victim during the event before opening fire about 6 p.m. Saturday in the 10000 block of Whittier.

The man drove off in a 2005 silver Cadillac SRX truck with an improper Michigan license plate number of DFC-1679, police said.

Authorities on Thursday released surveillance images of the shooter. He is described as 42 years old, stocky with black hair, brown eyes and a medium complexion.

The man police seek was last seen wearing a black pullover sweatshirt with white lining.

Anyone who recognizes him or has information is asked to call the Detroit Police Department Homicide Unit at (313) 596-2260. Anonymous tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
